Episode notes

In this episode, we bring you up to speed on the latest activities of the Lex Rex Institute before diving into Groff v. DeJoy, a Title VII religious discrimination case that produced some... interesting... questions from certain Supreme Court justices. We'll explain why religious obligations aren't just a nice bonus you get for being a good person and, for the umpteenth time, explain how stare decisis works and wonder why Justice Elena Kagan seems to struggle with the concept.After that, we'll take a minute to address David's biggest pet peeve in legal interpretation: acting like the Constitution is just another law. Finally, we return to Captain Kangaroo Court to discuss a bankruptcy judge who writes pulp fiction and hear from a Twitter user impersonating the mistress of King Louis XV about why you don't have rights at school.
